Chat: Brandon Rios-Mike Alvarado II

Auto Update: Off

Welcome to SportsNation! On Thursday, we're going inside the boxing ring when Brandon Rios and Mike Alvarado stop by to chat about their bout this weekend, in a matchup of the No. 6 and 7 ranked light welterweights.

Rios (31-0-1, 23 KO) takes on Alvarado (33-1, 23 KO) in a rematch of their fight from last October that Rios won via seventh round TKO. The Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas hosts the fight Saturday at 10:15 p.m. ET/PT on HBO's Boxing After Dark.

Rios kicks off the chat at 2 p.m. ET and is on a 13-fight win streak, including 11 knockouts, over the last four years. The only blemish on Alvarado's, who chats at 2:30 p.m. ET, record in 34 fights was the loss to Rios in October, a fight that was one of the best of 2012.

Send your questions now and join the chat Thursday at 2 p.m. ET!
